Chocolate-dipped coconut tahini bliss balls!
Or energy bites. or whatever you want to call them. I call them winning, because they are:
- refined sugar free
This past weekend, we spent the day out on the lake, kayaking. It had been a long time since I was able to spend an afternoon, laying back on the kayak, trailing my fingers in the water, floating wherever the wind took me, and enjoying the warm sun on my skin. (A little too much sun . . . my aloe plant is looking a little sparse.) The lake was beautiful and empty, thanks to the forecast thunderstorms. Of course . . . said thunderstorms did eventually roll in. We paddled in as fast as we could once we realized we had drifted to the far side of the lake and the scary clouds were impeding my sun lovin. David graciously did not comment on the fact that he was paddling twice as much as me and I took an awful lot of breaks to
massage my aching shoulders enjoy the scenery.
After a perfect afternoon like that, I’m always more motivated to maintain the healthy, happy glow with healthy, happy treats. Like coconut tahini bliss balls. Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against butter. Or sugar. You have 75% of my blog as published proof that dirty mistress butter demanded I leave my poor new year’s resolutions mere hours after they commenced. But indulging in a treat is somehow 1000% better when I can maybe-sort-of-okay-i-might-be-lying-to-myself-just-a-little justify my sweet tooth, because I’m satisfying it with all-natural, clean ingredients. And a smidge of dark chocolate never hurt anyone. In fact, I am positive that somewhere in the happiness bible, it says thou shalt eat dark chocolate. Every day. And there was much rejoicing in the land.
